Creepy moves in darkness dares discovery.
A thousand years in the future, humanity has colonized worlds in nearly
100 galaxies, thanks to Quantum Vibremonic technologies developed five
centuries earlier. Other new technologies have created various
off-shoots of humanity and extended life expectancies five-fold. The
story begins with how a mad scientist and his plucky assistant, along
with their robot friend, brought humanity to the stars, and continues
with the adventures of some unique people in fantastic places.

Scott's home and studio were without electric power for three days after the freak winter ice/snow storm hit Texas last week. That plus needing a day to recover and recuperate has eaten up his buffer of strips and put him a week behind schedule. We regret that a one-week pause in uploads is unfortunately necessary.
Diana stands before Wickberg and his attendants.
Diana: Sr. Wickberg, I presume? My name is Diana Martelli.
Wickberg: Ah, the famously brutalized refugee.
Wickberg: I must say, you look much more interesting in person.
Medium close-up on Diana. We can see Areum and one of the plebes behind her.
Caption: I wasn't sure whether he was alluding to that ridiculous get-up deClayre put on me for Tchaikowski's net-stream, or simply coming on to me. I chose to ignore the comment.
Diana: I'm conducting background research for a docu project I'm working on.
Diana: The topic involves the unsolved murder of the gynoid Hyami, who was once in your employ.
Caption: The 'docu project' bit wasn't completely a lie. I did plan on making a docu of this case after I'd solved it.
Medium four-shot of Wickberg and his four attendants. The gynoid on the left (Gynoid 1) is speaking.
Gynoid 1: She was our security on the House of Demons promotional tour, four years two cycles ago.
Wickberg: Ah, yes, I remember. Big girl. No sense of humor, but the job didn't require that.
Pan to include Diana, Gynoid 1, and Wickberg, who looks a bit annoyed.
Diana: No sense of humor?
Gynoid 1: She didn't laugh at the boss' jokes.
Wickberg: My jokes are professionally crafted, and failure to appreciate them is a sign of … well … humorlessness. Believe me, it's true.
